Well our famaily road trip in comming in three weeks. I guess it's time to start studying the carry laws of the states we'll be driving through. We will be driving through TN (honors GFL), KY (honors GFL), IL, on our way to St Louis (MO honors GFL). After a few days in St Louis, it's on to Memphis, through AR (doesn't honor GFL), for a few days, then through MS (honors GFL) and AL (honors GFL) on our way home. I have good word from a retired District Commander of the IL State Police that I'll be fine if I remove the mag for my gun, empty the chamber, and put the gun and loaded mag in a case that's out of reach. I'll have to play online and see about AR, and study MO laws. I'm already fairly familiar with TN carry laws and KY, MS and AL I'll just be driving through. It looks like www.handgunlaws.us and packing.org will be my friends for a little while.
